There are three tier-1 vendors selling opteron: IBM, Sun, and HP.
HP's have historically had slow RAID configurations, and IBM tries to
hide them and only offers really one model, a 1U unit. I've already
been through buying opteron systems from the smaller vendors and it
basically wasted a lot of my time due to what seems like quality
So it could be Sun or IBM. IBM seems to make it harder to buy from
them than Sun...
